Great collection with a thorough mix of modern and classical! The most beautiful (and prized) Ophelia painting is worth a visit just to admire this beauty in real life. There are several rotational exhibits too, showcasing the best of latest artists. The main shop is cute and decorated for Christmas, so it's a good time to drop in!
Tate Modern probably gets most of the headlines, but this gallery is probably one of our favourite places for art in London. The Turner collection alone makes this museum a must-visit for Art lovers in London. The staff are friendly, and the museum shop is world class. Did I mention that the art collection here is fantastic?? Well worth a visit to get a great panoramic view of British art through the centuries. Also - it’s free to enter!!!!
16th-19th century Instagram-like paintings, and very interesting and welcoming modern art display! Tate Britain is free to visit. It is located a short walk away from the Parliament. It's not very big, allow maybe two hours for the visit. The presentation of the art works is beautifully done, but the beginning of the visit is far from the entrance, make sure you check the plan if you wish to explore the museum in chronological order
I had a great time during my first visit to the Tate Britain. The building is simply stunning and the exhibitions are very interesting with a variety of artworks on display. This art gallery is a must-visit for art lovers in London. The staff are friendly, there is no entrance fee, and it is located in a great area. I highly recommend visiting here!
Just in for a quick visit while in the area and was blown away. The architecture of the galleries is fantastic, and still has a great selection of modern pieces, as well as a deep dive into older British art. Had a quick nibble in the cafe as well, which was good if a little noisy due to the acoustics
